Bird stories, Black-breasted Snake-eagle (Circaetus pectoralis)

The Black-breasted Snake Eagle, like the secretary bird, is by the Zulus of South Africa considered a symbol of victory. A symbol of victory over a vicious and pitiless world. Again and again in caves and in other places of gathering, our people used to portray this bird. It is also a symbol of God’s power. Its colour, black and white, like day and night, light and dark, show that this is a sacred creature.
